Rayna is "Always Demonstrating an Impressive Professionalism in all the Work She Does" says Teacher Rosanne Zagatta

Dear Editor:

I have had the pleasure of knowing Rayna Laiosa since 1988.   She was a student in my US History I class at Hawthorne High School.  A conscientious individual, Rayna always presented herself as a hard-working, dedicated  learner, who did well in her studies. The following year as a member of the Hawthorne Environmental Committee,  I had the opportunity to again ...

Does Rutgers Pay Too Much to Fired Coaches, Athletic Directors, and Academic Administrators?

Does Rutgers pay too much to fired coaches, athletic directors, and academic administrators? 

Everyone loves a good college football game. Last season (2018), the Rutgers Scarlet Knights record in the Big Ten Conference was a dismal 1-11. And this year does not look much better. Yeah, Rutgers is in the same league with some heavy hitters like Ohio State, Penn State and Michigan. But, ...

The Gift of Giving

In early December of 2017, a chef friend called me and during our conversation, it somehow came up that we should figure out a way to feed families in need during the holidays. I’m not even sure how we got on the topic, we were probably joking about it, but that discussion got me thinking that there was no reason why we couldn’t. I just needed to figure out how. 

After ...

Automation Inflation

I hate robots.

They talk funny and have no personality.

If that makes me a human racist, then so be it.

I talked to a robot on the phone the other day. it was sitting virtually within the deep, dark recesses of a computer connected to the working end of an 800 number. It tried to convince me that it was human. It asked me flat questions in an artificially chipper voice and then pretended ...

I want to Marie Kondo my head.

Actually, I don’t really know much about Marie Kondo, other than a vague understanding that she is the guru of decluttering. Once while surfing Netflix, I clicked on her show, Tidying Up. I thought it might be some sort of grisly crime scene drama.

It turns out it was a reality TV ...

Making a date over pastrami is not only easy but also ...
